    Hello fello BDW Brides!! Thank you all for sharing your beautiful dresses!!

     

    I have a dilemma and could use some advice. I found a dress online and had the bridal store order it for me with 1/2 down pymt. The dress won't be in until end of June... sooo since then I have decided I do not want this dress and have decided on a totally different style.

     

    I found a 2nd dress that I think I love and I was able to try it on, my only concern is that the front it is too plain. I'm comptelely in love with the back BUT the back is not going to be the focal point so I have to decide if it's enough. Ugh... so stressed. I have attached front a back pics of both dresses... any advise, thoughts or comments would be appreciated.

     

    1st pic is the dress I ordered and now don't want (ball gown, modern, couture), 2nd pic is the dress I think I want (simple, classic with a dramatic back)??

      hey debbie - I think both are great in their own right, and it really comes down to what you like and what you think looks best. what if you waited until the first dress was in and then tried them on back to back? have someone take pictures and see which you prefer. you may find your instincts were right on the first - then again, it may be that you really grew to love the second. but I think it's especially tough without trying both dresses in the same day.

       

      I'd say not to panic just yet - you have a fantastic dress AND a fabulous back-up -- not to mention time to spare before the wedding. just see how you feel after trying on the one you ordered and then go from there. best of luck. : )

          Thanks kellygrrl... really appreciate your feedback! I think your right I need to try both on the same day. I just wish I didn't second guess so much! I knew I would have a hard time finding the right dress... I can barely figure out what to wear everyday to work let alone for my wedding! Lol

              Awe thanks sascolo.... your too sweet:) I really do think I love the 2nd one too. It's funny cus I thought I wanted poof cus I love the look but after trying on some I changed my mind... it's crazy how they say there truly is one dress for every bride. I just have to "SAY YES TO THE DRESS" lol.

                    Oh and here is my dress. I can't wait to see her again. I can't believe I have to wait 6 months!
